Select the best serum for its cell line culture is very important and should not be taken lightly.
Indeed, there are a lot of serum commercially available, the most common Fetal Bovine Serum, but it is not adapted to all cell line.
Some cells will grow better in a Fetal Bovine Serum heat inactivated, or lipid depleted or charcoal stripped, by example. And some cells will grow better in an another animal serum, such as horse, chicken or mouse, by example.
Today, many scientists doesn’t want to use reagents derived from animal source and turn to Animal Component Free reagent or Serum Free medium. Several steps need to be realized before using this type of product to test and adapt cells to these new products.
If the wrong product is used for your culture, the main consequence is that you would not observe the growth of your cells.
The best way to choose the most appropriate product for your cell line, is to test it before.
ENZYM can help you, with our commercial package that includes growth performance testing of 2 or 3 different products (medium, serum or reagent) on the cell line of your choice.
Then we give you a growth performance report that allows you to choose the most appropriate product for your cell culture.
